The El Camino Traffic Disaster

Dear City Council Members:

I do not know how to resolve the traffic mess/congestion on El Camino since the real problem is too many people!! If the city management would set aside greed and consider quality of living, there might not be a traffic problem, water problem, etc.

If the religious institutions that own a ton of property in Menlo Park were made to pay even a portion of property taxes, perhaps the over building would stop, lessening the population but not lessening the $$$'s needed to run the city.

If there was space to have motor vehicles, bicycles, people and businesses with enough off street parking that would be great. Since there isn't how about by-passes for bicycles since their riders ignore the rules of the road, think they have the right of way always ... so give them their own lane off the main road.

I can see it now ... major conflict/accidents on El Camino due to the convergence of motor vehicles, bikes and people, all entities thinking they have the right away and bam major accidents! The answer is not to take away something, it is to ADD something.

Yes, the city needs the lanes back on EC, people need sidewalks to walk on, businesses need parking, bicycles need a by-pass ... pay for them with the property tax money from the religious institutions who want to do good works ... this way they can for all who live in MP!
